? >> i think so. there is no fantasy going on. everybody knows what this is about. easter bit down and obama wants to raise the rates. he knows the difference between revenues and rates. and republicans know the difference as well. they're going to have to compromise. eventually, the $250,000 will go up. and it will not be $1 million, but maybe $500,000. >> let's talk about the future of the republican party. >> anytime anyone take a trip to iowa, people start speculating about the future. i am not now, nor will i ever be a candidate for offensive coordinator of iowa. >> welcome to the 2016 presidential sweepstakes. mariko rubio in iowa officially as part of the governor's birthday fund raiser. but this gives iowa a chance to look at rubio. who is the favorite of this stage of the game? >> there is no favorite. the most terrifying and development is that terry branstad, a longtime governor of iowa, wants to abolish the iowa straw poll, which is held at the august before the caucus. and for those of us who need that fakes the august before the caucus, it is a terrible idea. >> repub

trillion. you could pay all of obama's death down. connell: that is not what he is talking about. >> okay. i am sorry. what he said is what i said. what obama claims he said is a separate matter. boehner was very clear. obama said, oh, you have agreed to tax increases. the talks collapsed because obama misstated. connell: what you say to republicans who are thinking about breaking the pledge? >> look, most republicans have signed the pledge. even the ones who have not have made it very clear even when they ran for office, higher taxes have hurt the economy. they have spent too much money. the entitlements are looking to break the economy. we need to spend less. raising taxes to get the politicians more money to continue spending, does not solve any problems. connell: i know you think this is the narratives being pushed by the media and all of that, if they do break it, that does speak to your own influence. >> for the last 20 years, they have all kept the pledge. the pledge, however, in the tax issue are very, very powerful. connell: do you think they will keep it again? >> i think they w

is striking. >> suarez: we mentioned the raw number came down for president obama but he still won by a sizable margin. inside that 60%, what changed since '08? for instance, white voters tailed off, didn't they? >> that's right. obama won the support of young white voters four years ago. that group, 18-29-year-old white voters tilted the other direction this year. they favored romney by a somewhat slim margin. but they don't make up that big of a share of the young voters. what kept obama in such strong standing is the fact this age group is so diverse. >> suarez: when people talk about the changing face-off america, you see it more in the 18-29s than any of the other age? >> absolutely. this generation, 42% of voters in 18-29 were nonwhite, 58% were white. that is far different from the folks 30% and older. those nonwhite voters continue to back democrats very strongly as they have in previous elections and they make up an enormous part of this age group, and that was a big factor for obama. >> suarez: so in your analysis, are there states where this vote clearly made the differe
scandal that would take down, you know, an official within the obama administration and they completely failed. and not only did they fail, it backfired. they lost credibility on their reporting as you just highlighted. susan rice is more popular and more well known than she was at the beginning and mccain looks humiliated by trying to create this committee out of full cloth. that went know where so fox has to kind of think now what is our role in the coming years if we can't -- if we can't use all of our energy and affect a change here. >> fox is a propaganda machine. >> joe, i want to be fair, there was one voice over there that tried to make a little sense and that was late in the campaign, was geraldo rivera. listen to what geraldo said. >> i think we have to stop politicizing. we're getting away from the real issue, which is, why wasn't there security before this happened? because that's the issue. but these preposterous allegations, reckless allegations -- do weapon want to know what happened? do we want to try and influence the election with a tragedy that happened in north afric
debate comes down to negotiations between president obama and house speaker boehner. specifically what can he sell to the house republican conference. they've been very stubborn in terms of moving toward any significant raising of tax rates in order to garner revenue. we heard plans that they really do see a way forward with the combination of spending cuts, closing tax loopholes. this so-called vagueness we do not know the specifics oup, they're saying, folks, support this. however, we're hear from a lot of house democrats that they don't want any type of deal like that, even some saying it's bet gore off the fiscal cliff than accept a deal that does not raise the tax rates. as much as you hear this talk it all comes to looking good through the republican house. we do not know yet. we know the staff's been working back and forthe. there's been all sorts of things floating around. to correlate for what the tax cuts would be for the rest of the decade. it's complicated stuff. both teams growing at it. i know they spoke over the thanksgiving holiday, but we are not close to a gentlemen's

more. raising taxes isn't going to deter the debt crisis coming down the pike. we need to focus on spending. we need to get president obama and senate democrats to say what spending they'll cut and how to change entitlement. >> did you hear what jay carney said in the last few minutes? he said social security, by the way, off the table. we're not going to discuss this while we do the fiscal cliff discussions. i mean, we're already there. raising taxes but not cutting spending. >> and that's exactly the point. >> social security is funded separately. it has it's own line item, it's a separate bill -- >> until the money runs out? then what do we do? >> that's not the point right now. >> it is. >> no, it's not. you won't solve those problems by going after the fiscal cliff. >> the only thing derailed is the conversation on what matters. what matters is spending. we have a debt crisis coming done the line. because we're spending too much. yet no one wants to talk about spending. we're talking about where can we raise taxes? raising taxes doesn't lower the deficit at all when you add
the disconnect you talk about is starting from the top on down. president obama sends his own two children to private schools because he was against the voucher program in washington, d.c. >> exactly. off hugely popular program in dc producing great outcomes. the kids that use these vouchers, graduate at much higher rates, 30, 40 points higher rates than kids who attend the traditional public schools in washington, d.c yet the president has spent his first term trying to kill the dc voucher program. >> gretchen: it comes down to why? i'm going to guess it's one word, which is unions. >> yes. it is. the black leadership is heavily dependent on teachers unions and labor in general for political support. they put that ahead of the actual needs in the community. it's a shame because it's doing real harm. president obama likes to lecture us day in and day out about the importance of education and education spending. yet he's killing a program -- he wants to kill funding fort dc voucher program. >> gretchen: i want you to finish the analysis that you talk about in your article because it's so i
at the president. the president has such a rare chance here. the debt ceiling crisis was the nadear of the obama administration. he had come to washington to unify the city and yet he couldn't get republicans and democrats to sit down and agree to a common sense agreement. he has the chance to do that now. there is a developing consensus to raise taxes in washington. that is so rare, it hasn't happened in decades. for the president, i think he has to make good on that opportunity. >> right. and you think the time is now. >> i just don't see how going -- first of all, more importantly going over the fiscal cliff could hurt a lot of americans. but i think it could also hurt the president. >> eamon, javers, i want to say thank you very much for joining us today. >> thank you. >> after the break, who is pulling the strings? we will look at the key players in the budget negotiations, to famous polls and some of the people behind the scenes. and are some republicans ready to cut ties? we'll discuss next on "now." having you ship my gifts couldn't be easier. well, having a ton of locations doesn't hurt
of mexico enrique peno is coming to visit president obama at the white house. he gets inaugurated and vice president biden is going down to be part of that. i think that's what we're going to be talking about tomorrow. >> the fact that president obama said one of his big priorities in the second term was immigration. so clearly the president of mexico is going to want to see what he's willing to deliver. >> right. exactly. this is something that the current president of mexico, calderon, has been pushing for a long time as well. >> thanks so much, jonathan capehart. that does it for this edition of "andrea mitchell reports." next up is my colleague tamron hall. >> the senate returns to work at the top of the hour as debate over the fiscal cliff kicks into shall we say high gear. are republicans ready to ditch their decades-old plunge not to hike taxes? we'll all talk with peter de-faiz owe who was just quoted as saying we're betting off going off the cliff. >>> plus, republicans say they're preparing to put an immigration reform bill forward, but is it adequate? we'll talk with nbc's latin
this you have killed tax reform for a generation. how do you get the rates down if you don't have the deductions and credits. what obama is hoping to do is raids spend the money, kill tax reform for individuals. >>neil: what do you do, the house majority leader and others, talking increasingly about this as an option despite what you are saying, are you going to want to exact punishment on them in two years? >>guest: it is, there have been some folks whose pictures you put up there some of them have engaged in impure thoughts and they have not actually voted for a tax increase, be clear. cantor and speaker boehner have said they want revenues from economic growth. i want that. all americans should want that. if we were growing at reagan rates rather than obama rates with we have ten million people work asking more revenue in the coffer. let's get more rest now through growth. >>neil: does it trouble you that warren buffett disagrees with your notion this would inhibit investment in a column today he said only in grover norquist's imagination does such a response to exist? >>guest:
down to the nitty-gritty and aides and those chose to president obama, there's not been a lot of movement on the taxive of what to do. republicans don't want to touch that. democrats want that. they feel they have a mandate from the election. that is the issue we said is going to be the linchpin for the last three months. it continues to be there. there is no movement on that. and until there's movement on how to come up with that type of revenue, 250 and above, we're going to keep having the same conversation about ongoing negotiations, talking points from both sides. >> luke russert getting down to the nitty-gritty. stephanie, let's get down to the markets. they put our chances of going over the cliff at about 5%. so why is the market freaking out? >> you know the market always wants to be a bull but it doesn't matter what side of the aisle to sit on you. have to agree we're not working with an efficient government right now and we haven't in a very, very long time. and the market, if you remember, the day after the election dropped 300 points. that was the dow. fearing the

of americans, the 2012 election came down to one issue, economic fairness. people voted in droves for president obama because they are sick of our system being so rigged in favor of the wealthy, where billionaires pay a lower tax rates than their secretaries and that's why the republican argument right now taking place in washington is just surreal. didn't they just lose the election defending tax breaks for the richest americans? not that they aren't good at talking a good game about compromise. one by one, some are coming out against the
. president obama who had nancy pelosi as speaker two years ago said don't raise the rates in a down economy. it hurts it. >> the economy's a little stronger now than it was two years ago. >> i don't know if you've been out there in the economy -- you see a lot of people underemployed, half of college students coming out, a lot of them can't find jobs. we're at our lowest point of new start-ups in 17 years for small business. and that's the greatest growth to economy. when you look to the future, we're in a weak position. >> what about raising it from 35% to 36% or 37%? >> what does that get you? >> $31 billion for the next year. you want to sit down and find a place to control government spending and raise more revenue. if the goal is to raise more revenue, what is the best way to do that at the same time protecting the economy? so if you're able to gain more revenue by closing special loopholes and limiting them and keeping the rate down so you have better job growth, isn't that a better outcome? >> the president says -- and he makes this point repeatedly, the white house put out a whole r

sometimes i think i knock him too much. but i do think jesus, that president obama had the guts to step forward and stare down the special interests and curb the costs of health care in the long run so we don't have to worry about costs anymore, right? >> that level of sarcasm may or may not be justified given that the program hasn't actually -- i mean, the program has cost savings that the cbo has scored out over the next 20 years. since the program hasn't been applied and come into effect, it's very hard to judge whether or not its cost savings will be realized or not. >> in that case, we don't even have to worry about costs. why don't we sit back and see if it works. >> that is not what i said. nor what i implied. >> actually, everybody knows that it's insufficient to what lies ahead of us. >> it may be insufficient, but it may also be a very powerful first step in the right direction. >> i find it surprising we spent two years on this show ad nauseam talking about health care reform, mike barnicle, and now you talk to everybody that comes on about what we need to do moving forward.

president obama spoke with the house speaker boehner and the senate majority leader harry reid over the weekend. still, concerns of the crisis and the european debt crisis sent stocks down but not precipitously but down. we are seeing signs of progress in washington, dc, with rare bipartisan consensus on raising taxes on the wealthy but they remain at odds over the specifics. in other words, exactly highway do you do it. and mike emanuel is live on capitol hill. the white house is expressing putting pressure on congress. >>reporter: a report on the impact if the bush tax cuts are not extended. the study says the typical middle class family will see taxes go up by $2,200 next year affecting businesses and retailers. the argument is the families will spend less and it will hurt the economy. >> you can see it across housing, and services, and things like paying for cell phone, groceries, durable goods, auto purchases. evidence like this is a reason why retailers are so concerned that congress has not yet extended the middle-class tax cuts. >>reporter: and carney noted the president spo
sector has to move in and the 39.6 tax rate, you are not adding in the 3.8%, obama increase in payroll taxes, it is over 40% and it hits small businesses, subchapter-s corporations and, llc as and flow-flew entities and the corporate tax rate goes down and it makes them feel good and the businesses hit by the tax increases are the very small and mid-sized businesses that create jobs. >> lou: folks who weren't there today, andy. the folks were not there today. >> same people that they'll hit with obamacare and internally increases and labor cost increases. >> lou: what if i told you that i think it makes some sense, give him at the margin what he wants on taxes, okay? whether that is on investment tanks capping deductions, basically what mitt romney was proposing, which made a lot of sense, i think for most folks, get this done, and, tn, say, all right, now what will you do? you will still be left, if you roll a of that up, you are still going to be left with a huge hole called the deficit and it will have to mean cutting the federal budget. >> so, even if we increase the tax rates, as
upside-down is ridiculous. it's not true. they have legislated with the effort to defeat obama. he won. he won by 2 1/2 million votes, 325 -- 327 electoral votes, overwhelming. even though they did everything they could to stop him from being reelected. everyone knows what a failure this congress has been because of what the senate has done and that's nothing. nothing. no job creation. they didn't want that. it would -- if -- if we had had some ability to create jobs, it would have helped obama, it would have helped the country. but, no, that wasn't what they wanted to do. and a terrible day for them last year was the -- several months ago, the supreme court -- can you believe that? -- the supreme court declared obama-care constitutional? i mean, you talk about disappointment. this whole year has been a disappointment for them because they haven't been able to stop obama from getting reelected, even though they did everything they could to prevent him from being reelected. and then obama-care being declared constitutional. mr. president, no, we're not going to break the rules to change
obama is doing enough to cooperate with the other side. that goes down to about only 24% when it comes to the republicans in congress. >> i'm still shocked by that spoiled children there. crazy. all right, so more republicans are actually saying that they may cave and violate grover norquist's no tax pledge. tell us about that. >> yeah, and that no tax pledge is about 25 years old. those who signed it pledged not to raise taxes. but they also pledge that they would be against reducing or eliminating tax deductions or credits. as you mentioned two senators in the last week, saxby chambliss in georgia and lindsey graham of south carolina, both republicans, both up in 2014 for re-election said they would break the pledge if needed to get a deal done. congressman peter king republican in new york feels the same way. take a listen to him. >> i think everything should be on the table. i myself am opposed to tax increases. the fact is the speaker and majority leader and the president are going to be in a room trying to find the best package. i'm not going to prejudge it. i'm saying we should
on revenue, yes, but we need to make a down payment on government reform and tax reform as well. >> ken burns, david's colleague, tom freeman, wrote a column recently. i think it gets to the leadership challenge for obama, what he's got to do to really apply leverage on capitol hill. he writes this. i get why the president needs to stress that the wealthy will have to pay higher taxes before he can go to the base for spending cuts to restore long-term fiscal balance, but here's what i hope we'll see more from the president. a sense of excitement, a sense that if we can just get this grand bargain done, we can unlock roads again. if everyone has to take their castor oil, make them feel it will enable us to all get stronger, make them feel we are embarking on a new journey not to sock it to the successful but create more abundance for all. a sense of some civic duty. >> that's right. not kicking the can down the road, which is very easy. you can see all the ways that can happen. i agree with carly. as someone who just came out of witness protection along with big bird since the first debate, br
